PfP2 Legal research

The Library has arranged some additional training workshops to assist you with your legal journals research.  If you need help searching for articles on a particular subject or finding the full-text of an article for which you already have a reference, you would find it very useful to attend one of these workshop sessions.  The workshops will be held in Room 218, on the following dates : –

  • Thursday, 19th March  –  12.30 – 1.15 p.m.
  • Friday 20th March         –  12.30 – 1.15 p.m.

To book your place on either session, please sign the sheet at the library enquiry desk, or E-mail the library at Library.GLD@lawcol.co.uk to indicate which session you would like to attend.  If you cannot manage either session, please contact Helen Hinder, Information Officer(Wed.-Fri.), at Helen.Hinder@lawcol.co.uk , indicating times when you would be free, and we will be happy to arrange extra sessions, including on a one-to-one basis if required.

Please also take a look at the legal research guidance pages which we have added to this blog (simply click on the headings ‘PfP2 Research’ and ‘5 Steps to Journal Research’ at the top of this page.)  The first of these pages has very useful advice on using the library’s on-line catalogue (OPAC) to search not only for journals but also for hard-copy books, loose-leaf texts, DVDs and e-books, as well as guidance on renewing your loans.  The ‘5 Steps to Journal Research’ talks you through the various steps involved in locating  the full text of an article. Please bear in mind that, if you are trying to locate a journal article using the library catalogue, you can only search by the title of the journal, and not the title or author of the article itself.
